Santander League 2018-19TOThe Lightning seeks to exit the descent and the Legans do not fall into
ANDIt's a battle for survival. The Rayo Vallecano start the game against the Legans put in the relegation posts, but with the same points as the pepineros (23). For either of the two teams, a victory will mean up to practically half of the table.
Maybe for the first time all season, Mchel's team start as favorites. Add 13 points of 15 possible in the last five days and seem to have no brakes. The negative? The loss of Santi Comesaa, fixed on the eleven Rayo and meets cycle of penalties. Mario Surez and Uche Agbo, recent arrivals in the transfer market, are not yet available, so there are two possibilities to replace the Galician: Medrn play-player player, or upload to Jordi Amat -habitual central- and give ownership to Glvez in the rear. Alejandro Catena and Franco di Santo, the other two additions of the winter market for the franjirrojos, have more rhythm of competition and could enter the call that Mchel will make public in the morning.
The meeting is of vital importance. At stake, three points and the golaverage between both sets (in the first leg the Legans won 1-0 in Butarque). Both teams have already met three times in official match. In addition to the clash of League, a Cup eliminator where the pepineros took the pass. Now, however, it is the Ray that comes stronger.
What is clear is that the Lega has been built this season in the worst rival for the whole of Michel. No team has beaten rayistas so much in this campaign. To repeat, the Lega miss his striker Guido Carrillo, who already scored in two of the clashes against the Vallecanos. The Argentine is still out and En-Nesyri is in charge of following his idyll with the goal.
In Vallecas do not lose what you lose, but for both is essential. The one that falls ends the day in descent. Pellegrino not give the call until minutes before, but it is safe the return of Rubn Prez, essential for the team. And the newcomer, Diego Reyes, may be on the list, after his incorporation on the last day of the market. They lose the party the regulars, Szymanowski and Ezequiel.
More than 340 Legans fans will be in Vallecas. The club has subsidized part of the tickets so that the team can be well wrapped in a vital match.
